You will get to Bullhead Lake from the Swiftcurrent Pass Trail. Will pass Swiftcurrent Lake first. Both are beautiful and this is a hike worth taking.

We actually saw a cow moose swim across this lake, about a kilometer across. It's on the Swiftcurrent Trail, about 3.5 miles from the motel. This is a great hike, so check it out!

The hike to Bullhead lake was very scenic with many different views along the way. The trail was relatively easy to hike with little elevation change. We did stop at all the lakes and waterfalls along the way which made the hike more beautiful.

Did this one on the first day, for this year's trip. I missed it last year and wanted to be sure to get it in this time. It was a nice hike. Meandering trails, slow elevation gain for the most part, and two smaller lakes...More

This is a great easy hike and because the trail is at a lower elevation, the trails open early in the season and stays open later than some of the other trails. Begin at the SwiftCurrent Pass Trailhead in the Many Glacier area of the...More

The hike was hot, buggy and exposed. The trail was very narrow in places with tall weeds and grass. If you do this hike, I would recommend going down to fishercap lake first, then stopping at the Red Rock Falls. I would not recommend going...More
